Evidence on the validity of Ud-hiyah

Q 2: Are non-pilgrims required to offer Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims)? Is it permissible for a group of non-pilgrims to share in one sacrificial animal, and does it count as Ud-hiyah for every one of them? Awaiting our reply, may Allah reward you .

A: It is an act of Sunnah for the able Mukallaf (person meeting the conditions to be held legally accountable for their actions) to offer Ud-hiyah, and it permissible for seven people to share in a camel over five years of age, or in a cow over two years old. A goat of one year or more, or a sheep of six months or older suffices a man and his household. (Part No. 11; Page No. 394) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
